Public Address Systems and Posters

Public Address Systems and Posters

Now hear this

Your school does have some leeway under the Constitution to decide whether it will allow student announcements on a public address system or allow posters on school property.

However, schools must apply these rules evenhandedly, without discrimination based on the ideas students want to express.

If students are allowed to announce support for a canned goods drive through posters or announcements, schools must provide the same privilege to students who want to announce an LGBTQ-related event. The only exceptions are the narrow exceptions to student free-.speech rights (See Limitations on Students' Free Speech).
